Irfan Pathan sled Shoaib Akhtar in the 2006 Test together with Dhoni. During this time both players managed to play Akhtar’s spell and in the end, this test was drawn. In this match, Dhoni hit his first Test century.

Former Indian paceman Irfan Pathan has revealed about his partnership with Mahendra Singh Dhoni. During the Faisalabad Test in 2006, MS Dhoni scored his first Test century. Pathan came in the middle when Team India lost 5 wickets on the score of 281. In the first innings here, Pakistan scored an innings of 588 runs. Pathan and Dhoni shared 210 runs during this period and saved the match. In such a situation, Team India scored 603 runs in the first innings. In a recent interview, Pathan had said how Shoaib Akhtar had harassed both the players during the initial partnership between Dhoni and Pathan.

During an interview, Pathan said how he sled Akhtar during his batting together with Dhoni. When I was coming out to bat, Akhtar was throwing the ball at a speed of 150-160 km during that time. I started batting with Dhoni and asked him how the pitch was. Dhoni said on this, nothing more, just bat you.

After this, I played the first ball of Akhtar and he turned out to be a bouncer. After this, I continued to get bouncers. To some extent, we were able to play his balls. We formed a partnership but once again Akhtar came to bowl.

Irfan further said that Akhtar was sledding and wanted to break our partnership. I told Dhoni, I will sledge Akhtar, you just keep watching me. Dhoni agreed to this and then we started doing so. After this I told Akhtar, will you bowl in the same manner in the next spell? Akhtar replied angrily, you talk a lot. I will remove you from here. After this I said, you will not be able to do this. I am also a true Pathan. You just bowl and don’t talk.

The next ball I got a bouncer for which I was ready. I left him. After this, he started putting short balls. I saw Akhtar again. After this I said- Cad, the pitch looks a bit wet, you have to put more short. After this, he became angrier. In this way, we managed to play their spell. After Akhtar’s spell, it became easy for us to bat. In the end we saved the Test match and this match was drawn.
